DESCRIPTION

The exhibition La Zona identifies different categories of "zone". The main reference is the zone in Andrei Tarkovsky's film Stalker - a territory that is at once enclosed and abandoned, deadly and healing, unpredictable, and always changing. Filmed seven years before the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Stalker is in retrospect considered as an anticipation of this catastrophe and its consequences. La Zona constructs a science fiction narrative out of the polymorphic reality of the "zone" as well as the fractured idea of progress and enlightenment.
